UK frustrated by Cayman Islands silence on money laundering
Tehran (KNA) - British law enforcement officers fighting money laundering are being frustrated by a lack of co-operation by the authorities in the Cayman Islands.
The National Crime Agency said it was "asking for information we don't get".
It says it has also significantly stepped up efforts to seize dirty Russian money coming into the UK.
It has also launched investigations into British-based lawyers and accountants suspected of facilitating money laundering.
The NCA leads the UK fight against money laundering and criminal money, which it estimates could be worth up to £1bn a day.
